Douglas Allred Company Breaks Ground On 100,622 SF Office Building In Chandler

Douglas Allred Company has started construction on another office building at Allred Park Place, a 100,622 SF, 2-story office building east of Price and Willis roads in Chandler.

The structure, which broke ground July 29, is the sixth speculative office building at Allred Park Place.

Mark Krison, Brad Anderson and Bryan Taute of CBRE’s Phoenix office will handle leasing the new Class A office building for the San Diego-based developer. Krison’s team also has the marketing assignment for the balance of Allred Park Place’s office buildings.

“Our Park Place project is at the center of where companies want to be,” says David Allred, executive vice president of the Douglas Allred Company. “Our product is cutting edge and future focused.”

Douglas Allred Company completed a 92,109 SF office building at Allred Park Place in December of 2012, which was leased to Infusionsoft, creator of a web-based, all-in-one sales and marketing software for small businesses.

Other major tenants at Park Place include Healthways, the largest independent global provider of well-being improvement solutions; and International Rectifier, a world leader in power management technology.

Completion of this newest office building is anticipated by 3Q 2014. Balmer Architectural Group of Phoenix is the architect and Willmeng Construction of Mesa is the contractor.

“The Douglas Allred Company has done an excellent job of meeting the market with business-ready buildings,” Krison said. “Our ability to be so flexible with companies has really contributed to the project’s success.”

Allred Park Place is a mixed-use business park consisting of office product, hotels and retail space along the Price Corridor. It has freeway access to the Loops 101 and 202, offering tenants an easy commute from virtually any location in the Valley.

The development also offers a wide array of amenities with its proximity to Chandler Fashion Center, as well as a short drive to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

Mark IV Capital to Build 170,000 SF Office Building For GM to House Innovation Center

 

Mark IV Capital entered into a 170,000 SF build-to-suit for an office building at Chandler Freeway Crossing with General Motors.

GM selected Chandler Freeway Crossing as the last of its four sites nationally to house their Information Technology (IT) Innovation Centers which will be used to in-source their company’s innovation capabilities and strengthens their global competitiveness.

The transaction was facilitated by the City of Chandler, which worked with GM to provide incentives to enhance job growth within the city. GM expects to hire 1,000 high-wage employees over the next five years in the Chandler location.

Chandler Freeway Crossing is on the NEC of South 101 and 202 freeways in Chandler. The business park also houses the North American headquarters for ASML (60,000 SF), which is currently being completed, and the Phoenix operations of Smart Modular (20,000 SF).

It offers convenient access to Chandler Fashion Center and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

Mark IV plans to continue to offer buildings on a speculative and build-to-suit basis. Real estate brokers representing the landlord in the deal were Dave Seeger, Karsten Peterson and Mark Detmer with Jones Lang LaSalle. General Motors was represented by Mark Collins of CBRE out of Detroit, and Mike Conner and Chris Hook of CBRE Phoenix.

“We are very excited about this transaction, and the branding it affords the City of Chandler as one of the preeminent technology centers in the country, and Chandler Freeway Crossing as one of the preeminent business parks in Arizona,” said Paul Cate, CEO of Mark IV Capital.

Mark IV Capital is working with Wes Balmer of the Balmer Architectural Group in the design of the building.

Douglas Allred Company Breaks Ground on 68,867 SF Chandler Office Building

 

Douglas Allred Company started construction on another office building at Allred Park Place, a 68,867 SF, 2-story office building east of the NEC of Price and Willis roads in Chandler.

The building, which broke ground in early August, is the second speculative office construction to take place in Metro Phoenix this year.

Mark Krison and Scott German of CBRE’s Phoenix office will handle leasing the new Class A office building for the San Diego-based developer. Krison and German also have the marketing assignment for the balance of Allred Park Place, which includes four additional Class A office buildings totaling 353,969 SF, with 34,495 SF of space available.

“We are extremely pleased with the market’s reception to our new product,” said David Allred, the firm’s executive vice president. “With strong demand and the immediate lease up of our earlier construction, another building at Allred Park Place is warranted.”

Douglas Allred Company broke ground on a 92,109 SF office building at Allred Park Place earlier in the year, which has been leased to Infusionsoft, creator of a web-based, all-in-one sales and marketing software for small businesses. That building is scheduled for completion at the end of the year.

Completion of the newest office building is anticipated by May 2013. Balmer Architectural Group of Phoenix is the architect and Willmeng Construction of Mesa is the contractor.

“The Southeast Valley leads the market in terms of absorption, with nearly 350,000 SF through mid-year,” Krison said. “While demand and supply are high, there are very few new, class A office projects available in the area. Allred Park Place will fill the void, offering exactly what the market demands.”

Allred Park Place, in addition to its location in the highly desirable Price Corridor, has convenient freeway access to the Loops 101 and 202, offering tenants an easy commute from virtually any location in the Valley. The development also offers a wide array of retail and restaurant services with its proximity to Chandler Fashion Center, Chandler Gateway, Chandler Festival Mall and Chandler Pavilions.

Future plans for Allred Park Place include construction of several additional office buildings, which will eventually exceed 1 MSF.

Infusionsoft Moving Its Corporate Headquarters To New Chandler Office

Infusionsoft, which creates sales and marketing software for small businesses, is relocating from Gilbert to a new 86,000 SF headquarters in Chandler at the end of this year.

Infusionsoft worked closely with the City of Chandler and the Arizona Commerce Authority to find a new home at Allred Park Place in the Price Corridor. Expecting to grow to 1,000 employees over the next three to four years, Infusionsoft will occupy the entire two-story building.

Willmeng Construction of Mesa is the general contractor and Balmer Architectural Group of Phoenix is the architect. CBRE will handle the leasing of space.

“We invested a great deal of time in our search for the ideal home for Infusionsoft as we continue this next phase of explosive growth,” says Clate Mask, CEO and co-founder of Infusionsoft. “Chandler’s Price Corridor represents a budding center for tech companies and talent. In the City of Chandler and the Arizona Commerce Authority, we’ve found true partners committed to our expansion, and to the success of our small business customers.”

Mayor Jay Tibshraeny of Chandler goes on to say, “Infusionsoft is a perfect fit for Chandler and the high-tech, creative class workforce we continue to recruit. Collaborative partnerships are critical in this knowledge-based economy, and we know Infusionsoft will be a stellar addition to the technology hub being created in the Price Corridor.”

Infusionsoft is rapidly approaching 300 employees, growing its workforce at a rate of 15% per quarter, and is currently hiring across all departments. With more than 32,000 users in 62 countries, Infusionsoft’s Web-based all-in-one-one sales and marketing software helps small businesses get more customers, increase sales and save time.

Infusionsoft integrates CRM, email marketing, e-commerce and marketing automation into one simple-to-use system that helps small businesses automatically market to prospects and customers. In the 1st quarter of this year, Infusionsoft customers captured 11 million leads with the software and $281M in e-commerce dollars were processed through the Infusionsoft shopping cart.

“Infusionsoft is a rising star in Arizona, and the ACA is pleased to see this company realize such success,” said Don Cardon, president and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority. “Infusionsoft was one of the first companies to take advantage of Arizona’s Angel Tax Credit to raise seed funding, and subsequent venture capital.  One of the ACA’s main priorities is growing our own — we provide assistance to help Arizona companies expand. Infusionsoft is a marquee employer in a growing industry sector.  The ACA is proud to have them as a partner in Arizona.”

Mask continues, “In this new location, we’ll create a world-class headquarters that represents the vibrancy and innovation of Infusionsoft. It will become the training center for small businesses in Arizona, and worldwide, to get the tools and education to help power their success.”

Working with the developer, Douglas Allred Company, Infusionsoft is creating a remarkable new work environment that will help the company continue to be one of the Best Workplaces in America and a Best Places to Work in the Valley.  The new space is designed to give employees a culture of inclusiveness, innovation and fun. Infusionsoft’s team will occupy the entire building, which is the first major speculative office building to be built in Arizona since 2009.
